FORT BEND COUNTY A man who claimed his dog was shot to death by two people riding four-wheel ATVs made the whole thing up, according to investigators.

Shane Hilliard told Fort Bend County deputies he was walking his dog near the Grand Mission subdivision on New Year s Eve when someone shot the dog. He said the riders were wearing helmets so he didn t get a good description.

After investigating his story, the Fort Bend County Sheriff s Office determinedHilliard lied about the incident. They believe he s the one who shot the dog.

Hilliard is charged with cruelty to animals and filing a false report.

He surrendered late Tuesday and was later freed after posting bond.
